uTorrent Android app manages torrents, pushes downloads to your device

We've played with some good remote torrenting apps in the past, but now, at long last, the most popular desktop torrent client has a companion app as well. uTorrent Remote for Android is available for download from the Android Market, and it's one of the slickest mobile torrent apps we've seen.

With uTorrent Remote you can fully manage your uTorrent desktop client: add and remove downloads, pause transfers, and check your RSS feeds for new downloads. Once a torrent finishes downloading, you can even push the completed files to your device for mobile viewing. It's incredibly simple to set up, too. Just set up some login details in Options > Preferences > Web, and then use the same username and password on your device. There's no need to fuss with your router or firewall, either -- uTorrent takes care of negotiating the connection on its own.

On your desktop, you'll need to download the uTorrent 3.0 beta (currently Windows only). Android 2.1 is required on your device to run Remote.
